trees you don't succeed you and you and you wonder israel's response to a barrage of missiles from palestinian areas the sharp escalation has raised fears of a widening conflict and the possibility of a repeat of israel's 2008 invasion of gaza. the following rocket attacks by hamas. this time around, the rules are vastly different. israel's missile defense system has greatly improved, the iron dome will when incoming rockets that israel is taking on a better armed hamas. this all presenting a serious challenge for both the united states and the obama administration and obstacles in creating a genuine palestinian peace process. we will take all of that up tonight with admiral james lyons. congressman louie gohmert of texas will also be here fred also, president obama has no plan to announce tax cuts and spending cuts. why they don't add up to anything meaningful. lou: the testimony before congress has been surveyed. congressman mike rogers. everyone else has testified that they didn't. do you agree? >> i do agree. and the deputies committee, i'm sure the white house representatives
around our other ally israel, and that instability continues to grow. one of the things that was helpful from egypt while president mubarak was in charge, at least there was some effort to restrict the transfer of rockets into the gaza strip. so there were some tunnels that would be found, the tunnels had to be kept small so they were able to get smaller rockets into gaza. but now that there's a new regime, apparently the bigger rockets are getting in to gaza and they pose more and more of a threat as they continue to be fired into israel. the action is not only the fall of an ally, president mubarak, but the assistance in bringing to power in egypt the muslim brotherhood. they want to see israel gone and they would also not mind seing the united states gone. it's important when formulating foreign policy that the united states, particularly the obama administration, decide, are we going to be assisted with our own personal security issue here in the united states by the actions we take or are the re-- reactions that are going to be caused by our actions actually going to cause greater t
wednesday. meanwhile militants on the other side have fired more than 200 rockets into israel. israel is massing troops near the border with gaza. they have got 30,000 troops there now and have 75,000 reservists getting ready. at least 42 people have died since the operation began. meanwhile, world leaders including representatives from the united states and the u.n. are calling on both sides to show restraint, but restraint seems to be in short order right now. ourarah sidner is live in gaza with a bird's eye view of the conflict. are you seeing more air strikes right now? >> reporter: absolutely, and in just the past few minutes we could hear the loud blasts of air strikes all night long into morning, 6:00 or 7:00 in the morning, blast after blast after blast and could look into the sky and see rockets coming from here in gaza city into israel. i want to show you a picture that our photographer dan morgan was able to take last night around 3:30 in the morning. he's pointing his camera towards what was the police headquarters. hamas police headquarters when he saw this picture. it wa
and counterstrikes are growing deadlier by the day as israel and militants in gaza turn their region into a raging battlefield. the strike you saw on this building in gaza city happened just hours ago. we were told a senior official from islamicee huhhed was killed in that strike. civilians are paying a price as well. officials in gaza say more than 100 people, many of them women and children, have been killed there so far. three israelis have also been killed. our christian amanpour is joining us from jerusalem. first of all, israel is insisting these are surgical strikes intended to hit militant targets and avoiding civilian casualties. we now have reports that 100 people have been killed in gaza, 800 wounded in the past six days. there's a lot of concern about where the civilians lie in all of this. >> well, suzanne, i think any military expert will tell you that it's not possible in a place that is so densely populated, as is gaza. however, israeli officials do tell us they do have a new set of weaponry, more precision weapons than they did this time -- this time last time around when they wen
to israel, this is a house belonging to a senior official of hamas, but at the same time there were 12 people inside of that house, including four women and four children. all of them killed. so many people are condemning that attack. meanwhile, it is nighttime here and the people of gaza are bracing themselves for what could be another night of deadly attacks despite the diplomatic activity in cairo. negotiations are under way as well as palestinian factions as to what to do next, but those here in gaza say they are preparing for a ground invasion, and meaning if israel launches a war, they will fight and they are prepared to defend their territory as they say and on the same side israelis say they have finalized preparation for a ground invasion and now it is a matter of a political decision, and certainly something that everybody in cairo is trying to avert, but one that everybody here thinks it is not going to be averted any time soon. thomas? >> well, you talk about the diplomatic conversations in cairo, and what is on the table? what terms are being discussed? >> well, two centra
flare-up in israeli-palestinian violence, in years. israel's offensive began last week, in response to a relentless barrage of missiles from palestinians. since then, the sharp escalation on both sides has raised fears of a widening conflict and the possibility of a repeat of israel's 2008 invasion of gaza. following similar rocket attacks then by hamas, this time around, however, the rules are vastly different. israel's missile defense systems greatly improved, the iron dome successfully intercepting hundreds of in coming rockets, but, israel is facing a better armed hamas, that has the backing of a new islamist government in egypt. this all presenting a serious challenge for both the united states, and the obama administration. and, new obstacles in creating a genuine israeli-palestinian peace process. we'll take all of that up here tonight, with admiral james lyons, retired commander of the u.s. pacific fleet and also, president obama wants more in the $1.5 trillion in tax hikes, but he has no plan -- or announced cuts in spending, why those tax hikes don't add up to anything mea

, including israel and gaza on the brink of war. >> we're going to have to see what kind of progress we can make in the next 24-36-48 hours. if we're serious about wantsing to resolve this situation and a create a genuine peace process it starts with no more missiles being fired into israel's territory. >> first off, we're in a developing story in the middle east. let's go now to stephanie gosk, who is in tel aviv with the latest. what's the tone on ground today? >> well you hear the president say that as long as rockets were dropping, it was going to be impossible to get a cease-fire here. and the rockets definitely keep on coming. and there have been attacks back and forth. a couple of volleys of rockets that came toward tel aviv. intercepted by the israeli missile defense system, iron dome, which end up intercepting all four rockets before they hit. southern israel was not quite so lucky. there were five people injured there when a house was targeted by one of the rockets. today the deadliest day for gaza, more than 20 have been killed. the deadliest attack over the course of the day was

supportive of israel's right to defend itself from missiles landing on people's homes and workplaces and potentially killing civilians. my message to all of them was that israel has every right to expect that it does not have missiles fired into its territory. if that can be accomplished without a ramping up of military activity in gaza, that's preferable. not just for the people of gaza, it's also preferable for israelis because if israeli troops are in gaza, they are much more at risk of incurring fatalities or being wounded. >> long simmering conflict between israel and gaza boiled over on wednesday after israel killed the top commander of hamas. since then, five straight days of air strikes and rocket barrages into israel. some rockets targeted tel aviv and jerusalem. whether both sides feel like they have accomplished whatever they felt like they needed to accomplish with this exchange of force. or alternatively, whether israel is going to roll these tanks that has massed on the border over that border for a big ground incursion into gaza. 75,000 military reservists have been mo
